CSS animations within SVG | viewBox

A very neat little trick. Embedding @keyframes within your SVG <style> element makes it animate when it loads, whether rendered as an image or a background (or, I assume, inlined). It can even be used in favicons on Firefox 🤩 Example with corresponding <img>:

<svg viewBox="0 0 100 100" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <style>
    circle {
      animation: bounce 2s infinite ease-in-out alternate;
      transform-origin: 50px 50px;
    }
    @keyframes bounce {
      to {
        transform: scale(0);
      }
    }
  </style>
  <circle cx="50" cy="50" r="25" />
</svg>
